Swiss air traffic control chooses eyevis projectors for simulator upgrade18 March 2015
eyevis and Antycip Simulation have announced the completion of a simulator upgrade for Skyguide, the organisation responsible for over 3,000 flights per day through Swiss and adjoining airspaces. The project involved modernising the TOSIM Blue tower simulator, to improve its performance in training situations.
With over 600 people training with the equipment every year, the upgrade helps Skyguide more effectively cover basic and advanced training. The project involved the installation of 14 eyevis ESP-LWXT-1000 LED projectors, combined into a single 360˚ simulation with a 9.5m diameter.
Christian Massmann CEO of eyevis Group, commented: “These WUXGA resolution projectors enable a 30% higher pixel density per screen area. This provides a significantly increased level of detail for the simulation. The increased brightness and the eye-catching colour quality help to provide a stunning representation of the airport apron improving the quality of the visual simulation.”
The newly installed eyevis projectors are almost maintenance free due to the cluster-LED light source and the heat-pipe cooling with a mean time between failures of 60,000 hours.
